Ceylinco Life Uplifts Ridgeway
Life insurance leader Ceylinco Life has extended its community initiatives to the Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital, addressing several needs of this premier medical facility in Colombo.
The company recently donated 25 foldable beds, renovated the lighting and electrical system, installed fans and repaired defective sections of Ward 1’s concrete soffit.
The foldable beds are for use of parents of warded children who stay over at the hospital.
Thanking Ceylinco Life for its contribution, Colombo University’s Paediatrics’ Department Head Professor (Ms.) Manouri P. Senanayake said: “The mothers of long-stay and very sick children are now able to get some rest at night due to the generosity of your organisation.
Ceylinco Life’s efforts towards improving this children’s ward’s physical environment are appreciated by the Professorial Paediatric Unit’s staff.”
